“Cold”

Hooker Lake, Mt Cook NP, New Zealand South Island

The Story of "Cold"

Perhaps the best hike in all of the South Island of New Zealand is the Hooker Lake trail.  The impressive peaks of the Southern Alps grow larger with each step, offering stunning mountainscapes throughout the hike and finishing with this jaw-dropping view of the dreamscape that is Hooker Lake.

This shot was taken as the sun began to set behind the mountains on a cold winter night in July of 2018 and is one of my favorite photos of the year.  The soft water is perfectly juxtaposed against the jagged, dramatic mountain peaks, resulting in a calm yet powerful response.
